Job summary
Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. What will you help us create?

The Role:

As a Design Analysis Engineer, you will be responsible for bringing new product designs through to manufacturing. Thermal and structural engineering contributes unique, in-depth technical knowledge to solve complex engineering problems in concert with multi-disciplinary teams including Industrial Design, Hardware Engineering, and Operations.

You will work closely with multi-disciplinary groups including Product Design, Industrial Design, Hardware Engineering, and Operations, to drive key aspects of engineering of consumer electronics products. In this role, you will:
· Perform analysis and testing of complex electronic assemblies using advanced simulation and experimentation tools and techniques
· Strong fundamentals in dynamics with emphasis on system dynamics, mechanism analysis (Multi Body Dynamics analysis) and co-simulation
· Develop, analyze and test thermal, acoustic and structural solutions; from concept design, feature development, product architecture, through system validation
· Support creative developments through application of analysis and testing of complex electronic assemblies using advanced simulation and experimentation tools and techniques
· Use simulation tools like Abaqus, LS-Dyna, Simpack for analysis and design of products
· Validate design modifications using simulation and actual prototypes
· Use of programming languages like Python and Matlab for analytical/statistical analyses and automation
· Establish noise thresholds for usability and compliance requirements
· Determine and validate structural performance under use and test conditions
· Have strong knowledge of various materials such as heat spreaders solutions to resolve thermal issues, damping materials for noise and vibration suppression
· Use various data acquisition systems with thermocouples, accelerometers, strain gauges and IR cameras
· Collaborate as part of the device team to iterate and optimize design parameters of enclosures and structural parts to establish and deliver project performance objectives
· Design and execute tests using statistical tools to validate analytical models, identify risks and assess design margins
· Create and present analytical and experimental results
· Develop and apply design guidelines based on project results
